Pastor Michael Phillips was raised during the 1950's on the mission field in the Canary Islands,Spain. He is the son of missionaries, Pastor Vincent and Mildred Phillips. After four years in the U.S. Navy Submarine Service, he spent his college years majoring in Theatre Arts. He then spent 15 years as a professional actor.

In 1976, Michael met and married the love of his life, Tansie, and they now have three grown children. In 1987, Michael and Tansie received the call of the Lord to full time service, and from 1989 to 1995 they lived in El Masnou, Spain (near Barcelona) where Michael pastored a new church.

From 1996 to the present Michael has pastored the Shepaug Valley Bible Church. His passions are for the purity of the Gospel, making Jesus Christ known to a world that is desperately in need of Him, and serving the Lord as He raises up a people who will love one another as Jesus loves us. Michael and Tansie have a heart for counseling married and soon-to-be-married couples. Michael also has a special place in his heart for the prodigals, as he himself was one for 21 years.
